With so many great (...awful?) covers it was impossible to pick just three. The TTTP team of judges decided to award three special runners-up prizes to three honorable mentions we felt deserved some extra recognition.

Honorable Mention #1: THE WORLD'S FIRST COLORING DVD by YPSmitGimmick
Richard Jebe (a/k/a YPSmitGimmick on the GAC Forums) came up with this creative idea for a DVD. His prize is a selection of public domain Cartoon Craze DVDs featuring such characters as Popeye, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd, Porky Pig, and Woody Woodpecker!
Honorable Mention #2: DAFFY DUCK...AND MAYBE PORKY by Boilerwash
Matthew Cole (Boilerwash) put together this Daffy Duck cover that does a good job of imitating those PD covers that look like they were the result of a 5-minute Google image search. His runner-up prizes are a copy of the DVD set Super Friends, Volume 2 and, of course, his very own DVD of public domain classics.
Honorable Mention #3: DUFFY DUCK GOES TO WAR by mmm...donuts
Stefano Alba (mmm...donuts on the Forums) sent this us this cover with a Wartime theme. His runner-up prizes are a copy of the DVD set The Perils of Penelope Pitstop - The Complete Series and, yes, his very own DVD of public domain cartoon classics.
The moment you've been waiting for.... THE WINNERS!!!!!
3rd place: OSWALD DA UNLUCKY RABBIT by JAGBugs10
GAC Forums member Christine (JAGBugs10) sent us this cover drawn by her ten year old son, Javier. Young Javier is a big fan of classic cartoons and this website and he put together this clever cover featuring a character who was making headlines earlier this year: Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. Christine said "The first thing Javier did when we came home today [from vacation] was to check if he won the contest. He literally jumped up and down, he was so excited." He wins a copy of The Flintstones - The Complete 4th Season on DVD and DVD full of public domain cartoons!!
2nd place: BUGS BUNNY - THE 10 BEST by gdX
Greg Dundis (gdX) comes in 2nd place with this classic cover featuring Bugs Bunny (or an unreasonable facsimile). He wins a copy of the DVD Looney Tunes Golden Collection, Volume 3 and a public domain DVD with Porky Pig!
IT'S THAT TIME AGAIN....
Beautiful, isn't it???
We once again proudly present the Termite Terrace Trading Post's highest (?) honor, the coveted Golden Farmer Porky Award, to the TTTP's Ugliest PD Video Cover winner of 2006.....
1st place: TOM AND JERRY CARTOON JAM by Easily Amewsed
Congratulations, Shelley Pleger (a/k/a Easily Amewsed)! Not only will Shelley be getting a copy of the Tom and Jerry - Spotlight Collection, Volume 2, The Best of Tennessee Tuxedo and His Tales and a DVD of public domain shorts... this cover will be an inspiration to ugly PD cover artists for generations to come. Upon winning, Shelley had this to say:
- "YAY! I'm the most horrible! Thanks GAC for this opportunity to prove
that 'crime' does indeed pay. :) Also thanks the Tom and Jerry Online site for the great screencaps and other resources. And thanks to the muse Weird Al, who helped me 'Dare to be Stupid'. "
That's all, folks! Thanks to everybody who entered! See you next year!!!
